In order to eliminate the influences of time wrap and sensor system errors on precision of multi-sensor data fusion in maritime cooperation of multi-platform, the transfer relation between Earth-Center Earth-Fixed coordinate system and Cartesian coordinate frame described by navigation information is modeled, in which Earth-Center Earth-Fixed coordinates are transitional characters and to be eliminated. Combined with innovation correlation function sequence, a self-adaptive filter is presented to register time and sensor system errors for multi-platform, which identifies model characters and error characters on line. Contrastive simulations show that the registration algorithm based on high-precision navigation equipments can converge quickly with high precision.
